Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, says Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti, has sought his legal services following the singer’s assault on a police officer.
In an interview with Punch, Falana said the singer has enough evidence to defend himself.
“I am his lawyer and he has briefed me. He certainly has evidence. This is not the first time he is dealing with the police.”
Falana also stated that the singer would turn himself in on Monday, May 15.
“He is going to report himself to the police tomorrow morning. There is no problem at all.”
The Daily Crucible reports that singer was on Saturday captured on tape assaulting a police officer on the Third mainland bridge and he even slapped the hapless officer.
But reacting to the video, the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, ordered his immediate arrest.
However, Seun in a post shared on his Instastories alleged that the police officer tried to kill him and his family. He further stated hat the officer has apologised and that he will not be pressing charges against the officer.
